Really great place in India, from Delhi aprox. 12 hours. Villages name is Bir, Mountain - Billing. Best time is October November. If you go earlier, thermals will be really strong and weather unstable(rain). Usually I stay aprox. 1 month, prices are really friendly(hotels, food, transfer, taxi and etc.).
As we know, this is on of the bestest XC place in the world, but if you know what you do, you also can practise a Acro. :) There is no water landing possible. Thermals are really great, in a good day you can fly ~6 hours.. Last year, all days in month was great. :)
